Watch the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse on November 28

It's the last eclipse of the year, so enjoy!

On November 28, look to the skies for the final lunar eclipse of 2012, according to timeanddate.com, a website that displays world clocks, time zones, moon phases and more.

A penumbral lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes through penumbra of the earth's shadow, but not the umbra. According to mreclipse.com, "The outer or penumbral shadow is a zone where the Earth blocks part but not all of the Sun's rays from reaching the Moon. In contrast, the inner or umbral shadow is a region where the Earth blocks all direct sunlight from reaching the Moon."

The moon travel through the Earth's shadow between 4:14 a.m. and 8:51 a.m. on Wednesday, according to timeanddate.com

Residents of California will be able to see some, but not all of the eclipse (the entire show can only be seen from Hawaii, Alaska, Australia or east Asia).
